Green Building Video Roundup

We're not going to delve into anything deeply substantive until after the holiday weekend.  Check out these video shorts on Green Building topics:
  • Baldwin Homes' new Preserve at Severn Run community features an innovative Coastal Outfall System for stormwater management, designed to create its own ecosystem in a few years, so it might not even be perceptible as a stormwater management system.  Click here for a video presentation on the system. 
  • Trauner Consulting's Construction Netcast site features netcasts on a number of construction topics.  Click here to see Scott Lowe discuss the use of photographs to document issues on the jobsite as they occur.
  • Energy Star's National Building Competition is a competition among 14 commercial and institutional buildings nationwide to see who can eliminate the most energy waste.  Two area buildings are among the contestants: the 1525 Wilson Boulevard office building in Arlington, Virginia and the Sears in the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie, Maryland.  Energy Star is styling the contest as a reality show, "Biggest Loser"-esque event.  In that spirit, click here for a pep talk to the contestants from fitness expert Bob Harper.

  1. Thank you for sharing the information. The videos of green building are really very nice and the concept of green building is helping a lot not only in controlling the environment but, it is also helping in the improvement of human health as the more natural resources are being used in the construction of the building the environment will be healthy and less polluted.

    There are number of companies who are providing the service of green building concept and also educational videos for the builders which is helping them to construct the building using natural resources. There is a company named as logical green institute who is providing the service of green building educational video and is also South Florida's green building consultants.
